    If she plans on keeping it in the house for a pet for a very long time you really need to restrict the feed. Years ago when those things got popular people would feed and feed and feed the little piggy. Well, the more you feed it, the bigger it gets. People would dump the things out and they would turn wild. They caused all kinds of problems for the people that had to deal with the dumped pigs.

    My buddy found a boar and a female with piglets. The boar was mean. He would charge you. He shot the boar and we caught the female in a trap. The piglets would go where ever the trapped mother pig went. We gave them away to a lady that took in homeless pot bellied pigs.

    They can get huge. If you restrict the feed they stay small. You will feel like you are atarving the pig but it is better than hving a huge pig and haing to get rid of it.
